Profile:

Nate Adams, the newest king of Fresstyle Motocross, came to the sport as many others, from motocross racing. But he quickly found his niche jumping over the track and not racing around it. Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, he has become one of the best freestyle motocross riders in the world during his short time as a professional. Switching over to freestyle Nate instantly found success in IFMA events and in after only one year as a pro he was crowed the World Freestyle Motocross Champion in 2002.
Adams continues to take on the competition head first, claiming multiple titles in the Gravity Games, LG Action Sports Championships, X Games, and the Vans Triple Crown. His drive to win is second to none and he continues to develop his craft. One of the most dificult tricks in any freestyle motorcross rider's repertoire is the back flip. But Nate has raised the bar beyond the standard and can complete more variations of the trick than nearly any other athlete competing.
Despite spending most of his time in the air, Nate's attitude is quite down to earth. His friendly personality is popular riders in the paddock as well as with the fans. His laid back and comic nature doesn't let him take the pressures of his profession too seriously and enjoys everything from video games, movies, music, art, and drawing.
